An Industry Poised for Growth
There is a shift taking place amongst the GCC countries to reduce their dependency on an oil-based economy. As a result, sectors like education are looked at to provide a robust education system to provide a strong intellectual capital. Today’s economy requires a skilled, eﬃcient and erudite workforce which can be produced with a dynamic education system. As a result of this shift in dependence, the education sector is currently undergoing a phase of growth. The governments of the respective GCC countries have also opened up the education sector inviting private players. This has led to an increased participation of private institutions and higher enrolment rates at private educational institutions. Grant Thornton Abdulaal combines technical knowledge and global reach with deep industry knowledge and local market understanding, to help you to navigate the complexities in the environment to beneﬁt from the return to growth.
Bahrain’s Education Industry
Bahrain houses the oldest education system amongst the GCC countries. Bahrain Economic Vision 2030 has laid down the roadmap for the further development of the education system in the country. Education ﬁnds a key mention under the scope of social development. In 2008, the government launched an independent body named Quality Assurance Authority for Education and Training (QAAET) to supervise the progress of the education industry.
